Pray that Christians will have the courage to proclaim the gospel of life and dignity for all with kindness and clarity, even in the face of adversity.
One of the promises of America is that many voices have a right to express themselves. Is that promise being fulfilled? On college campuses across the country, students who bear witness to life face intimidation and harassment. While a university can be a place to debate controversial topics, those who speak on behalf of the unborn are not merely dealing with opposing views. They are having their perspectives cancelled altogether. On the feast day of two of our boldest preachers of the gospel, Sts. Peter and Paul, who faced intense hostility, let us resolve to have the courage to speak the truth with grace, asking that the Lord will give us the prudence to be creative and compassionate in our witness.
